Latin.png Latin text

Beata Agnes in medio flammarum,
expansis manibus orabat,
Te deprecor omnipotens adorande
colende Pater metuende,
quia per Sanctum filium tuum,
evasi minas sacrilegi tyranni
et carnis spurcitias,
immaculato calle transivi,
et ecce venio ad te
quem amavi, quem quaesivi,
quem semper optavi.

English.png English translation

Blessed Agnes amidst the flames
stretched forth her hands in prayer:
To Thee I pray, Almighty, Adored,
Revered, and Dread Father:
For by Thy Holy Son
I evade the sacrilegious tyrant
and this spurned flesh,
and go my way unsullied
to come unto Thee,
whom I have loved, whom I have sought,
whom I have always chosen.
